Yes, technically the 2013 season begins tonight with the Astros and Rangers, but I think we all consider tomorrow to be the real Opening Day. It’s not just a Yankees thing either, tomorrow is the season’s first full slate of games. That is Opening Day to me. Anyway, the Yankees finalized their roster today and will open the season against Jon Lester and the Red Sox tomorrow afternoon. Less than 24 hours away from real, meaningful Yankees baseball. It’ll be glorious.
Here is your open thread for the evening. That Astros-Rangers game starts at 8pm ET and can be seen on ESPN. Bud Norris and Matt Harrison is your pitching matchup, the second least appealing of the 15 Opening Day pitching matchups. The Knicks are also playing and apparently the Walking Dead season finale is on. I’m a few episodes behind and I’m not sure how I’ll be able to catch up with the season starting. Oh well. Talk about whatever you like here. Enjoy.
